Julian Edelman joins Tom Brady, David Ortiz in recruiting Kevin Durant
The Celtics are trying to sign Kevin Durant, and some of the Boston area’s biggest sports heroes are trying to lend them a hand. We’re not talking just basketball stars, either.
On Sunday morning, Julian Edelman joined Tom Brady and David Ortiz in trying to convince Durant to sign with the C’s.

As you may have heard, Brady sat in on Durant’s meeting with the Celtics on Saturday. The three-time Super Bowl MVP also reportedly flew to the meeting in the same private jet as Durant. Ortiz was apparently invited to the meeting as well.
Yo @KDTrey5 sorry I couldn't make the meeting today but Brady will tell u they don't call Boston the City of Champions for nothing

It still seems like Durant is most likely to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, but that won’t be due to a lack of effort from the Celtics and their famous buddies. Perhaps it will be that effort and Boston’s big free agent signing that convinces K.D. to start a new chapter in his career.
